Wedding and Events Venue

Established in 1799, Travellers Rest is the oldest house open to the public in Nashville. A true gem nestled just a few miles outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown, Travellers Rest is the venue to say “I do!” with its rich history and idyllic grounds.

With large magnolia trees, a beautiful formal garden, and grassy meadows, Travellers Rest exudes southern charm. Ceremonies and special events can take place outside under a canopy of trees against the backdrop of white fences or the historic home itself. Indoor events enjoy our modern day crib barn with a Tennessee limestone fireplace, high ceilings, and beautiful wooden beams.

Say "yes" to Travellers Rest and let your memories become a part of our history!

Wedding Testimonials

Thanks to Travellers Rest Plantation venue and staff for making our wedding an incredible experience. Everyone was wonderful to work with and we couldn't have had a better time!


I loved having my wedding at Travellers Rest. It was beautiful! Cryssa at Travellers Rest was always helpful and responsive. Also, the guy we had on the day of the wedding was very helpful!


Thank you so much for all of your help in  making our wedding day the best ever! If only we could just throw parties for all of our friends and family all the time at Travellers Rest. It was magical seeing everything come together so perfectly. Thank you!

Tina and Matt

My husband and I looked all over for a reasonable priced venue that met our needs. We wanted to have an intimate wedding with southern elegance. Travellers Rest provides both. The house and grounds are gorgeous! We could not have imagined a more perfect venue for our perfect day!
